Twister Cushion

Project Description

What are you most proud of? After following the instructions, I had a square piece that I really didn't have a use for. It was 22" square. So I went and purchased a 20" pillow form and decided to make it into a throw pillow. I think it turned out pretty great and it really brightens up the room! I also included a close up of the white I used for the border, it has subtle little dragonflies in it and complimented this charm pack perfectly! What advice would you give someone starting this project? The whole concept of piecing your squares and then chopping them up again is a bit strange, but I did it and am thrilled with the result. Now I have 2 more of these charm packs and will be designing a matching quilt.

Tanya W. answered:
They are Watercolor Garden Charm Pack by Benartex, and then I used a white cotton with Dragonflies for the backing. I used 1 charm pack for this project. I have 2 more of this same charm pack so am going to make a matching quilt to go with it. I ordered the fabric from MSQC.
